At Dale Head, Belle's head is in a mess.

Having been forced to tell Tom she's pregnant, she's been love-bombed by her abusive husband who is over the moon about the news.

Though Belle was hoping to hide the pregnancy from Tom so she could work out what she wanted to do, she found herself having to tell him to stop her from hitting him.

Trying to control her anger, she confronts Tom who, yet again, tries to get round his wife.
